The Contemporary FD 2019, London.
CFOs of the Global Frontier: Scale without Borders

We are excited to announce our fourth annual Contemporary FD Summit, in conjunction with our strategic partners , Smith and Williamson.

The event this year focuses on international expansion which has become increasingly important for UK FDS , even without the dreaded B word!

Global Supply Chains , outsourcing and the march of specialisation mean growth businesses quickly exhaust domestic markets . To scale you need to look elsewhere …fast!

This event is invite only and aims to bring together upwards of 150 CFOs . We have a fantastic selection of key notes, panels and interactive sessions designed to stimulate the brain, including finishing off the day with Crista Cullen, the Olympic gold medal winning hockey international .

Please email Sarah Hunt on for more information.
